My work caught a worm, just like this. They had to do a Windows Update. I would suggest doing that too.

Isn't this the same windows update that the US govt warned people about, around 2-3 weeks ago....

Always check windowsupdate regularly, since if you were up to date, it wouldn't let those script kiddies do their damage

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A virus-like infection that was the subject of urgent U.S. government and industry warnings spread rapidly Monday across the Internet, causing computers to mysteriously restart and coordinating an electronic attack against Microsoft Corp.

Security experts said the infection, which exploits an unusually dangerous flaw in Windows software, wasn't yet seriously disrupting Internet traffic but posed that risk as it was expected to continue spreading quickly overnight.

Researchers discovered it about 3 p.m. EDT, and reported tens of thousands of infected computers inside universities, businesses and homes.

"It seems to be taking off fairly quickly," said Johannes Ullrich of Boston, who runs the D-Shield network of computer monitors.

Infected computers were programmed to automatically launch an attack on a Web site operated by Microsoft on Saturday. The site, windowsupdate.com, is used to deliver repairing software patches to Microsoft customers to prevent against these types of infections.

Microsoft offers a free patch on the Web site to protect Windows users. "

For any ones information, SP1 on XP is about 30-40 Critical updates behind where you should be.

As I said before, this warning came out about 3 weeks ago.

Oh, the fix ALWAYS comes after the exploit has been found, so you are never safe.
